You don't

If your a Safety..... you look at what he did to Oaklands safety in the endzone hit. That guy hit JG, stopped abruptly, staggared to the ground like he hit a bull head on and then laid there.

If I'm a DB or S......I don't want any part of Jimmy.

Probably be a chip from the linebacker, have the FS shadow him, and hope he drops the ball... or blitz the hell out of the quarterback.

Look at the game's elite tightends... Gates, Witten, Finley, Clark. You can't game plan for them. You just hope for the best. If you give them extra attention, the WR's will eat you alive. They're going to get theirs... you just have to limit what everyone else is doing.

You draft LeBron James and have him cover 1-on-1.

I may get blasted for saying this, but IMO the best way for opponents to game plan against Jimmy Graham is to not pay him any special attention right now. He is not a proven at this point, he is still dropping passes, and at this point is not a game breaker. Once that changes, then look out, because he has great potential to be one of the best. But right now if I am a defensive coordinator planning for a game, I have to put emphasis on shutting down the proven areas before I deal with worrying about Graham.

Gets me thinking....what ever happened to Boo Williams? He was pretty good.

As good as Graham looked, at tmes, he still had some drops & problems. NOW I will admit that hit in the endzone that dropped the DB - LMAO
